2nd post - challenge entry!

Hi there,

Feels weird on the week's I do a slot as a guest member of the design team over on Craft Mad & Loving It as there's no card for me to make!!!

This morning also saw a new challenge over on the Less Is More blog so I thought I would crack on with that. It's Clean And Simple and MASCULINE this week . . . check out my card


Materials used:
  • 250 gsm white card and matching envelope
  • Kanban image and sentiment stamped using Ranger Archival jet black
  • Stamping Up black marker pen and Tim Holtz clear design ruler

Hope you like it - Happy Saturday everyone

Pauline said...

Fab card love the pop of red against the White.

Jennifer Rzasa said...

I love this super simple card!

Bernadet Rodakowski said...

Kathy, that's one of my favorite design "tricks' - creating a border with the focal image just outside the lines. It gives the whole piece a dynamic quality. Not to mention the racing red for the scooter. Great masculine card!

AsAlwaysAngela said...

I really love the way the "negative space" is outlined by the square! Very nice card!

xxxtglxxx said...

Thats incredibly neat Kathy! :) I'm amazed at those lines drawn with a ruler - no way could I do that - it would smudge all over! lol.

Great image and a fab card - The bike looks great in red, though I did expect to see it in purple! ;) lol.

This is the layout I wanted to do for my entry but "chickened out". You did a great job and I now wish I persevered - maybe I should try again.

Fantastic card.

cheers,

Great card, love that red scooter !

massofhair said...

Clever card using great techniques and colours. Love most types of two wheeled transport and this is a great stamp.
Thanks for leaving such great comments on my entries most weeks it is very much appreciated.
One of my favourites from this weeks entries:-)

Squirrel x said...

Oh this is just perfect hun! Love the bold image and the border is inspired (may have to "borrow" that idea). Hugs Sxx

Kathyk said...

THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone who has taken the time and effort to leave a comment here. It's wonderful that so many of you have. The border round my card is not an original idea as many entries have previously used this technique and it is the first time I have used this - not the last though judging from the kind comments. The Kanban set of stamps are just fab as guy cards so you may see more at some point.

Thanks again everyone

Kathyk
